Immediately behind the house there is a lawned area with a large, attractive water feature and a paved outside terrace. Beyond a small hedge, there is a very large lawned area where you'll find a vegetable plot, a children's swing set (included in the sale), a garden shed, a second, larger shed, a small greenhouse (the larger greenhouse will possibly be retained by the vendors), a further shed / hangar, a kennel / animal enclosure and various fruit trees and plants (apple, plum, pear, cherry, kiwi plants and raspberry bushes).

The tiled roof of the house is in very good condition, new zinc guttering was installed in 2014 and a satellite dish is in place. The old septique tank with a capacity of 3,000 litres has been cleaned out and is now used for rainwater collection to water the garden.


The house is situated in central Brittany on the edge of a village which has both primary and junior schools. As is usual in many French villages, a daily school bus service operates to collect and return older children from senior schools in nearby towns. The village has a bar / epicerie and a post office. Just a few minutes away by car there is a thriving hotel / restaurant / bar in the next village and only ten minutes away by car you'll find the town of Mur-de-Bretagne with its banks, supermarket, restaurants and other amenities. It's just a short hop from Mur to the very large lake at Guerledan which forms part of the Nantes-Brest canal and is very popular with walkers, cyclist and sailing enthusiasts.

The north and south coasts of Brittany are both reachable with an hour or so, for example Binic and its neighbouring resorts on the north coast is around 57km (36 miles) away and the south coast is around 83km (52 miles) away.

The department of Cotes d'Armor is the northern most department in the Region of Brittany, with the English Channel to the north, Ille-et-Vilaine to the east, Morbihan to the south and Finistere to the west it is a sunshine gem.

The picturesque Émeraude Coast looks north to the English Channel and is packed with charming seaside resorts and old fishing villages. Most of the towns of the interior were founded in the Middle Ages. The department's southern half is crossed by the Noires Mountains that run west to east with rivers emptying to the south into the Bay of Biscay and to the north into the Channel.

Along the coast, fishing was once important but is now secondary to the cultivation of fruit, oats, potatoes and wheat and of course tourism.
